Carrie is a single mom who is working on overcoming her struggle with past issues. Since she has moved back home she has made great strides into bettering her life and making positive changes, even reconnecting with family
Carrie recently found a job and is working on going back to school to complete her education in hopes of obtaining her dream of becoming a nurse. Carrie has recently found affordable housing, and is not able to afford the basic necessities for her new home. Carrie would appreciate dishes, utensils, pots, pans, toiletries, towels, linens and curtains so she can make her home cozy.
Through Christmas Eve, The Garden Island will share daily, front-page stories about families (we don’t use their real names) facing challenges and who would appreciate a little help.
The Christmas Fund is an avenue for everyone to provide that assistance. Donations are used by Zonta Club members to purchase gift certificates that are in turn distributed to families and individuals through social-service agencies.
Each donation is accounted for and recorded. There are no administrative costs involved, and money goes directly to provide for those in need of Christmas presents and groceries.
If you hold a fundraiser for the Christmas Fund, let us know and we’ll spread the word.
Anyone making a donation of $150 or more can have their picture published in TGI.
Donations may be made by way of the website, Zonta-Kauai.org, or checks can be made payable to The Zonta Club of Kaua‘i Foundation, P.O. Box 3032, Lihue, HI 96766.
